DISCLAIMER: Puffin Cloud Browser is NOT a web browser.
Puffin Cloud Browser is the client app that accesses the cloud server which runs the web browser. The Puffin client app and the Puffin cloud server do not communicate in HTTP protocol and the data exchange is not in HTML format. The Puffin client app is like the remote desktop client and the Puffin cloud server is like the remote desktop server. Puffin Cloud Browser gives the audience the illusion of a web browser but it is not, in reality, a web browser. Puffin Cloud Browser can only "display" the web content rendered on the cloud servers but can't "render" the web content itself on the client devices.

Love it but few problems
I just downloaded this app not long ago and I'm honestly loving it, with being in a other country most of the websites I used to go on became blocked, this app allows me to get access to the movie etc sites again.
Only problem I have so far is that every couple of hours everything starts to slow down then it freezes all together.
F$&K you apple.
I have used this browser for years. It is the only one that will let you view the desktop version permanently. Safari is a horrible browser on iOS that I barely use as it is much slower than Google search app and you have to manually tell safari to fetch the desktop version every time: and many websites don’t end up working anyway. Apple what do you expect us to use and why does google and chrome get to stay but puffin is “competition”? My fanny they are. Is puffin a trillion dollar company now? Apple is slowly getting rid of Steve Jobs vision one device at a time until it becomes another generic $$$ corporation with barely anything to distinguish it from competitors. Eventually even the dedicated apple users begin to lose interest in the latest underwhelming overpriced e-pencil/headphones/monitor stand. This is what happens when you put a robotic gay man in charge of an IT company: the only “innovations” are a new range of flamboyant colours on the same basic clothes as the year before. I would know. 🏳️🌈
Unfair Apple is denying this App support
This app is the only bridge we gamers have between iOS and PC!!! And thanks to Apple denying them rights to update their app (discrimination) we are about to lose Puffin. Its been a joy to use and the only link I had available to play games like Forge of Empires (full version not iOS short version) in PC format on my mobile device. The only app Ive ever given 5 stars to because its one of a kind.
Obviously I still use your browser Safari. This app was never a substitute. Never a rival. But it served a purpose. Now that you discriminate by allowing other apps the ability to update and not this one you have killed it. And iOS has never offered a bridge to desktop platforms. So what am I supposed to do now? Put down my Apple mobile and get on my Microsoft desktop! What have you achieved? Nothing!! Essentially by shutting down Puffin I will put my mobile away and return to my desktop for my gaming needs. And shame on you Apple for discrimination!!
